Default Re: Plastic Bag Ban

Add Hawaii Island to the list of counties that have passed a ban. Yesterday the County Council passed a bill that has gone to the Mayor for signing into law.

"Much like Maui's ordinance, the Hawaii "plastic bag reduction" bill proposes prohibiting all businesses from providing plastic checkout bags - both compostable and non-biodegradable plastic bags - to customers at the point of sale."

I will be unhappy when I have drippy chicken and beef packages to transport from the store to home. And, I use recycled plastic bags for may uses: packing shoes in luggage, sorting dirty clothes in luggage, wet clothes after the beach, those sort of things. I'll get by without plastic sacks for that, ....but the drippy groceries .....
